hard to party

This post is being typed at 2 :53 in the morning because i just came back from a party that i really enjoyed. the party was to celebrate one of my friend's who added one year to his age. he had a lot of people over there and it was just dancing galore.

It is funny how you can be a DJ with just computer and internet, lol with things like Youtube, Gidilounge, pandora, it is very easy to just mixx sounds from the pc and connect it to a high amp speaker.. Yours truly was the DJ tonight, and i must say it was fun, i was just mixxing away, i tried but i know i am not as good as a prof Dj would have played...loved the experience tho.

Ok, i have been trying to talk to this babe for a while but it seems she is playing hard to get and lets see how this game would end. i know there is no perfect relationship but why dont you just give it a chance, i guess you are missing out on this Dark, hot chocolate called 9ja's OT.

so i have being hitting the gym a lot lately and i am loving what i am seeing, i just need a little more abs workout and i think i would be very content with every every.
changing your diet and lifting weights, i tell you are not the easiest thing to do, but i am struggling through it, i now see why we have proud and arrogant models and actors, because for you to put in all that time in the gym and have the result u want, you will always have the urge to lift your head up and say "this is all me, i did this". I pray by the grace of God i never become arrogant and proud would never be a word that people would use to describe me. Amen.

So let me go to bed, i need to sleep and still have assignments to work on that are due this week. have a nice day people.

the week

This week has been very good as it flew by very quickly, we had a clinical rotations week in school and i was posted to a school BOE, which composed of various schools. so me and the person i was attached to had to drive around a lot in order to see various students in their educative environs, it was different as i got to see very maany pediatric diagnosis and worked with them

My school is going on great and i am looking forward to graduation, i just cant wait for the graduation season to begin and God should put my name on my school's list, i am looking forward to it a lot. this is my last full semester in Grad school and excited is not the word to describe it..God help me.

sometimes i want to talk about many things on this blog as they happen to me but either i am away from a computer or i am just too lazy to get on the PC and type away and by the time i am ready i have forgotten half or all of it.

there are so many things in life that young people want to talk about but either we are too shy to talk about it or we dont have someone to talk about it to (me).
I was doing my blog roll call (which i have not done in a loooooong time) and i came across numerous blogs of people that just spit their minds like they think, and i think that is just awesome, when u have an avenue to speak your mind and get other people's opinion while still keeping your sanity and not paying some therapist 100 bucks an hour to hear you cry.....reminds me of one George Lopez episodes, i watched where he went to visit a therapist and when he left the therapist's office, the therapist needed a therapist

i came across some posts that were about life's struggles, sexual struggles (tell me about it), relationships, and so many.
I think i would be blogging more and opening my mind more through this avenue.....just need dedication. and somebody pray for me if you care.
Thank you for stopping by

This man built a house, raised 2 graduates selling chewing sticks

It sounds incredible that somebody could build a house and train children up to the university level, selling common chewing stick {pako}. But, this is true of a popular chewing stick seller in Akure ,Ondo State, Peter Ngwu, who has been in the business for over 30 years.

Ngwu, 63, said despite meagre returns, he has trained two of his children to university level.The Ebonyi State- born father of five children said in an interview with Daily Sun that contrary to the view that whoever was dealing in his kind of business was a wretched man, he has been in the business for over three decades and made a success of it.

Baba pako as he is popularly called by his teeming customers said he had built his own house and trained his children to university level adding that : “I am still training the remaining three, I give glory to God”On how he became a chewing stick seller, Ngwu said he was a successful business man dealing in kitchen utensils with a store at Arakale area. “I was doing fine in the business until I was robbed by an armed robbery syndicate at upper Uwenka in Onitsha many years back, Baba pako said, saying that the robbers carted away all his money meant to purchase goods to replenish his store at gun point in Onitsha.

The development ruined him financially.He was jobless for a long time, before a friend came to introduce the chewing stick business to him. “When he mentioned the business, I felt bad and I thought in my mind that how come somebody who was dealing in kitchen utensils in a big form would suddenly become a chewing stick seller. But, when there was no hope of getting money to continue the business, I didn’t have option than to accept the offer”He said his friend gave him some money to start the business and after sometime the business gradually boomed. Ngwu said at a stage he used to make between N700 and N1000 profit per day.

Baba pako gets his bulk supplies from Calabar for both whole and retail sales in Akure.He explained this : “It is very scarce to get the sticks here in Ondo State, but in Calabar, they plant them in large quantities, because they take it as a big time business, unlike in Ondo State.Ngwu advised jobless youths to embark on cottage business that could keep them busy rather than engaging on unwholesome acts capable of ruining their lives.

I just posted this story to show that u can become successful in wateva u pray and put your mind to. nothing is a ridiculous job or career.

have a nice weekend
